NEW YORK, March 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Tablet (www.TabletHotels.com), the web-based travel agent specializing in unforgettable hotel experiences, has expanded its editorial focus, transforming the Tablet home page into a compelling and opinionated travel magazine.
The latest version of Tablet makes it easier than ever to cope with the modern traveler's overdose of options, driving those who know their destination directly to the best hotels, while allowing others in the window-shopping stage to discover new places through inspirational and informative destination features.
Destination Features cover food, art, music, culture and more — in short, all the reasons we travel in the first place. These geographically focused stories are tailored to a local audience, whether it's a British perspective on Miami's excesses, an American's guide to the emerging hotspot of Jose Ignacio, Uruguay, or a French-language look at Cannes in the off-season.
Smaller bites are provided by the weekly Agenda, for standout restaurants, pop-up shops, exhibition openings and anything else that Tablet travelers can use as a quick burst of inspiration. These also include photo essays, first-person hotel narratives and Tablet Tunes, a series of playlists assembled by Tablet editors to provide epic soundtracks for larger-than-life travel experiences.
Finally, the ever-popular Tablet10 lists have been upgraded for today's highly visual web. The usual care has been taken in curating a wide range of top-ten lists for any theme or purpose, but now they're accompanied by dynamic slideshows that highlight the hotels' visual appeal.
Tablet's expanded editorial content mirrors its approach to hotel selection. "We want to be the service discerning travelers trust from inspiration to confirmation," said Tablet co-founder Laurent Vernhes. "Our goal is to put the ease, romance and glamour back in travel."
